The last stop of the Busan trip, before going to Gyeongju, I deliberately came to experience the Buddhist atmosphere of Korea. You need to change trains, but it is not complicated at all: after exiting the subway, walk along Bandao for 2 minutes to reach the station and take bus No. 90 In the car, the place where you saw everyone get off is the Beacon Temple. Most of the grandparents came to climb Jinjing Mountain. On the way, we also met a Malaysian Chinese couple who went to Beacon Temple together. There are many believers in the temple, and the main hall is full of devout and faithful people who come to chant and worship, but they will not feel noisy at all. I think this is the pure land of Buddhism! The overall area of the temple is not that big, and its layout is the same as that of Chinese Buddhist temples in China. Some details are also exquisite. As a famous Korean temple with historical relics, it is natural to feel the sense of history. During the visit, I happened to encounter a Chinese-speaking monk who told me that the temple can provide fast food at noon. Because I was in time for the meal, I had a vegetarian meal with the believers after the visit. I left Beomeosa Temple in awe of Buddhist culture and temples, and ended this trip to Busan.

It was founded in 676 A.D. and it features extensive grounds, murals, and Buddhist relics brought from China in the 4th century. I wasn’t very impressed with the temple. It was very touristy and I felt like all of these tours were disturbing the peace. I didn’t really want to take pictures and I thought our guide was being disrespectful with her microphone blaring. I did enjoy seeing the Buddha statues. It was pretty scenery since the leaves were just turning colors there.
